My birthday, once again, was celebrated as a birthday weekend! I can't believe I am now 27! But, that's ok, last year was the weird b-day for me, turning 26 mad me officially closer to 30 than 20.
On Saturday, July 2nd, my in-laws volunteered to watch the boys in Park City while Cameron and I went to Maxwell's East Coast Eatery, soo good! Afterward we went to the Outlet Mall for a shopping spree!! Cameron had me pick out what I wanted for my birthday :) Everyone was having great deals, up to 50% off of everything!
The next day was Sunday so we all dressed up in our 4th of July best! (I didn't realize at the time that I had a tiny little fingerprint smudge on my lens. That's why it's blurry. Oh and excuse my hair, I didn't realize it was sticking out.)
We took a somewhat better one indoors. Too bad it's blurry!
The next morning (on my actual birthday) I woke up to a yummy breakfast of Swedish Pancakes made by my lovely husband, Cameron.
Isn't he wonderful?!
Right after we got ready for our 1st ever neighborhood Independence Parade. (A couple of of my friends put it together.)
All the kids were supposed to decorate some sort of bike or something, but our kids were the only ones who ended up walking. We didn't have time, but that's ok. Aren't they adorable in their red, white and blue while holding their flags?
Afterward, the adults threw out candy, gave out snow cones...
(Oh all these wonderful looking pictures were taken by by friend Annie, she took pictures of the whole event.)
and cookies. The boys were in heaven!
And the adults got to participate in an egg toss. Cameron and I were 3rd to last to get out. (We are in the back, I'm in the process of catching the egg.) Afterward I was talking to one of my friends only to start hearing singing. I didn't pay much attention to it until someone called my name out, I looked around and found a big group of ppl standing in front of me singing, "Happy Birthday." It was great!
Afterward we put the boys down for a nap and one of the Young Women from my ward babysat, as a birthday present, so Cameron could take me out to lunch.
After that, we went to our HOA funded neighborhood 4th of July Celebration in the park. They had a lot of blow up bouncy slides and mazes. Carnival games, food and fun!
I had to go through too, Connor needed lots of help, not b/c I wanted too ;)
I actually didn't like most of it b/c it was all wet. There was one big water slide so all the wet kids went through all the regular blow up toys too and got it wet.
Cade got his face painted as a doggy.
Finally after a few hours of fun at the park we went home for cake and presents. The boys made me wear this party hat.
Cameron got me a yummy cheesecake and sliced fresh strawberries for me! It was great!
Afterward we and our friends, the Duckworths, joined us for fireworks. We went to an empty lot and watched the Thanksgiving Point firework show. There were tons of fireworks going off all over the valley, it was beautiful!! It sprinkled a bit while we waited, but it was still a lot of fun.
My night ended w/ Connor falling asleep in my lap! I loved it, like a dream come true. He hardly sits still long enough for me to cuddle him, let alone to fall asleep. All Cameron could say was, "Happy Birthday." And yes, all my wishes did come true :) Thanks Cameron, boys and Duckworths! I love you Cameron, you always make my day (weekend) so much fun! It was a long, long day, but well worth it.
